Lyrics

Jesus went around did a lot of good

Brought a lot of peace to the neighborhood

He cured the sick and he healed the blind

Turned the bride’s water into wine

 

He gathered up his band of men

The tax collector and the fisherman

He talked about love ‘til his time had come

To walk that highway to kingdom come

 

Sometimes when the darkness is all I see

I try to remember what he said to me

 

Jesus went down to Jerusalem

Took a look around and said, “It’s me or them.”

He cried, “Dear Daddy, do I have to go?

I’ve seen what’s coming, it’s a bitter road.”

 

Sometimes when it’s hopeless, I’m tired and sore

I try to remember what he came here for

 

They took that man so sweet and clear

And they made him walk the trail of tears

They drove him up the hill to Calvary

Where he stepped through the door to eternity

 

Now we know he’s coming but we don’t know when

So let’s not do what we did again
